Ideal for Long Straight Lines and Sweeping Curves
Scotch® Fine Line Tape 218 features a natural rubber pressure adhesive for high instant adhesion. The polypropylene backing is stiff and less stretchy than vinyl fine line tapes, but conforms easily around corners. Conformable to stretch easily around curves, this tape features good moisture and solvent resistance and is 5.0 mils thick to provide excellent color line separation.

Recommended Applications
  • Fine line paint masking
  • Can sealing
  • Circuit board conformal coat masking
  • Solvent resistant masking
  • Electroplating stop off masking, non-critical
  • Silk screen masking
  • Circuit board splash mask protection
  • Lettering
  • Moisture resistant masking
  • Labeling (surface writable)

Scotch® Fine Line Tape 218 is not considered a high temperature tape, but can be used for bake cycles up to 250ºF (121ºC) for up to 30 minutes. The tape should not be subjected to outdoor exposure or prolonged periods of sunlight as it may become difficult to remove.
